The Texas Alliance Foundation donated to the following Texas A&M student organizations:

The Eckleburg Project { }

The Eckleburg Project is the official undergraduate literary magazine of Texas A&M University. We are a student run magazine featuring student poetry, prose, and art. Barely a year old with two issues under our belt, we started with the idea in mind that art should be free to the community and easily accessible.

Without community, art would not exist, and artwork is a direct reflection of that community. Thus, became our name, inspired by Doctor T.J. Eckleburg from The Great Gatsby. Dr. Eckleburg acts as a symbol of the all seeing eye over the city, not missing a single event or happening. To truly be a great artist, one must act as an acute, yet objective, observer to the environment. In order to grow in your art, you must surround yourself with art. Herein, The Eckleburg Project was born.

TAMU Sounding Rocketry Team { }

The Texas A&M University Sounding Rocketry Team is a student-run organization which designs, builds, and tests a high-powered rocket to compete in the Intercollegiate Rocket Engineering Competition sponsored by the Experimental Sounding Rocketry Association (ESRA). This event is held each summer in June near Green River, UT and includes universities from all around the world, including Brazil, Turkey, and India.

The goal of the Sounding Rocketry Team is to provide hands-on experience to undergraduate and graduate students interested in the field of rocketry. The team ranges from graduate students to freshmen chosen from a pool of applicants in the College of Engineering.

Southwestern Black Student Leadership Conference { }

SBSLC serves as a forum for minority students, especially African American students, to discuss and develop potential solutions to the issues plaguing the minority community. SBSLC serves as a Texas A&M University tradition due to our 25 years of dedication to bringing in over 600 racially and ethnically diverse students and advisors from around the country to engage in intellectual discourse as well as partake in the Aggie spirit and values. Many of our conference participants are from two-year institutions in the state of Texas. Thus, SBSLC also serves as a window into the TAMU community and campus life, and presents Texas A&M University as an appealing and viable next step for these potential future Aggies. SBSLC is dedicated to ensuring diversity on the TAMU campus by providing an organization and conference that gives every current and prospective TAMU student, regardless of race, religion, or sexual orientation, a chance to enhance and refine their leadership and networking skills.
